Madrone 2012 Cabernet SauvignonYoakim Bridge Road Block
A wonderful nose of earthy spice and healthy cherry. Laveder tones give it a slightly floral nose. An interesting tannin structure. Starts chalky but ends silky. Neat trick. A lovely but short black licorice whip as it finishes. The finish seems likes its going to give up but it keeps on truckin. Nice wine from a small lot but its a big price tag for my price point.

Winemaker Notes: “Aromas of tarragon, plum and currants with hints of cedar and vanilla lead to deep flavors of black cherries, lavender and cedar supported by textured tannins.”
